An opinion piece in the New York Times by Nicholas Kristof yesterday titled “A Smarter Way to Reduce Gun Deaths” is worth an entire read. In it Kristof faults both liberals and conservatives for focussing more on divisive approaches than common sense expeditious methods, and his suggestions are backed by (shudder) statistics. Kristof responds to the observation that for decades, we’ve treated gun violence as a battle to be won rather than a problem to be solved — and this has gotten us worse than nowhere.
